Games - Chairball - Grow Youth & Kids Ministry Curriculum
Grow Games Logo



This is the perfect mix between ultimate frisbee and two chairs that will keep your students so active they will literally try to sit down. For real! That’s the object of the game: to sit down and score a point!

What To Get:

  • BALL. You will need a ball that can be thrown easily. This can be anything from a kickball to a beachball (which would add its own level challenge to the game).
  • CHAIRS. You will need two chairs for this game.

What To Prep:

  • PLAYING AREA. You will need to define your playing area. Depending on the size of your group, you will need a rectangle-shaped playing area with one chair at each end.

How To Play:

  • SPLIT TEAMS. Split into two equal teams. Have each team line up near their chair.
  • CHAIRBALL. On “go,” have an adult throw the ball into the playing area while players try to get to the ball first. Once a player has the ball in their hand, they can only pivot around on one leg. They must throw the ball from one teammate to another, trying to get the ball from one spot to their chair. Once they have gotten the ball to their chair, the person holding the ball can sit down and earn one point. Reset back at each other’s bases and play again. The team with the most points at the end wins!


  • GAME VARIATION. To add an extra wrinkle into the game, you can add the scoring rule. If a player scores, then they are no longer able to hold the ball. They can strictly only play defense to try to intercept the ball. They can’t catch the ball; only swat it down. This way will make it harder for a team to pull away, as it will be more difficult to move the ball to score each time they get a point.

    We know it’s hard to find (or create) quality youth group games, which is why we decided to put together the most incredible library of games we possibly could! The Grow Games and Icebreakers App has a library of more than 500+ games, and it’s always growing! There are team games, party games, screen games, team games, outdoor games, and indoor group games for youth ministry. All the games you could ever want, basically.

    This app is built for kids and youth ministry. All of our games are created by church leaders and ministry-tested!

    Plus, the games are fully customizable. Every game comes with graphics, instructions, and a place for you to add your notes, photos, videos, game categories, and game ratings. You can even submit your own original games if you have some you’re proud of!

    The app also comes with handy tools you might want to use during a game (or a sermon) like scoreboards, clocks, a prize wheel, polling capabilities, and a random name chooser.
